Make A Cute Frog With The Ability To Hop

Easy way to make a paper frog. Your kids would love the hopping paper frog

  • Fold the square piece of paper in half and unfold. Fold it in half the other way and unfold.
  • Fold the paper diagonally and unfold. Fold the piece of paper diagonally the other way and unfold. You should have four lines in the paper and eight triangles.
  • Push the folds of the paper inward where the paper makes a straight horizontal line across the middle of the paper. You should have a triangle on top and a triangle on bottom, with the sides pushed in to create diagonal lines.
  • Push the paper flat so that the triangles are squashed down. Fold the top layer of the right corner inward to the center so that it meets the top of the point on the triangle. Repeat with the left side. Make sure that you are only folding the top layer.
  • Fold the top layer of the right side inward again until it meets the point in the center. Repeat with the left side.
  • Fold the top right layer outward to create a wing shape. Repeat with the left side. Turn the paper over so that the large triangle is facing you.
  • Fold the top right layer inward toward the point in the middle. Repeat with the left side of the paper.
  • Fold the top layer outward on each side, as if there were an imaginary line in the center of each triangle.
  • Fold the bottom part of the triangle under to create the jumping mechanism.
  • Turn the frog around so that the other side is facing you. Fold the back legs under. Lay it on a surface and press on the top to make it jump.
